  • How Responsive Layout Works?Use Media Queries to choose different screen resolution.Eg:@media only screen and (min-width: 480px) and (max-width: 767px) { the css definition specific to tablet portrait view goes here}Use JavaScript/JS frameworks to watch the screen size and change in resolution to introduce/remove few css classes to HTML elements and control the renderingBrowser Sniffer RedirectionRead the request header attribute 'User-Agent' and identifies the device, the operating system, the type and version of browser accessed from, mobile device or not, etc.In addition the header attribute 'Accept' is analysed to determine if it can accept only WAP contents (older and lower version of mobiles)
  • Responsive Layout for High Resolution Screensit makes use the Alloy UI and introduces different set of CSS Class Names based on the screen resolution change.For instance, if the screen width is something above 960 pixels, the below set of css are included dynamically to the element.aui-view-gt320aui-view-gt480aui-view-gt720aui-view-gt960aui-view-960Responsive Layout for Low Resolution ScreensIn case if the screen width is somewhere between 720px to 960px, then the below set of css are included dynamically to the element.aui-view-gt320aui-view-gt480aui-view-gt720aui-view-720Aui-view-lt960This basically adds support to media queries where it would make the CSS coding simpler at certain complex areas. To have this screen width specific CSS, all it requires is the below piece of code added to the theme's main.jsAUI().use('aui-viewport')
